All pixels on the screen are used regardless. Just a bigger sample size with FHD. However, QHD will use a little more battery if you are changing the image on the display. For the fact that it has to draw that many more pixels each time the image changes. Which is millions of pixels. But I believe a lot of static image changing is done by the cpu and not the gpu. where gpu is used mainly for constant motion on screen.
But honestly part of the reason they have such high resolution is for VR. That and to make more sense of taking UHD pics and videos. Most people won't notice a working difference between the two through regular use unless they keep it really close to their face, or have very good eye sight.
So you will see it use some extra battery. Not a detrimental amount more unless you are a heavy user of games and whatnot. Or if you force GPU rendering, then you should see a big difference in battery
IMO, it's very good considering the screen size
Did you try comparing SOT with QHD vs FHD resolutions? I understand that SOT won't really improve if you go for lower resolution..
but its still interesting to see the results. If its like 0.5-1h of SOT to a SOT result which on QHD is 6-7 hours, I would never go for lower resolution..
Now after 10 days, mine is usually around 5-7 hours, if I just surf internet, Youtube, using FB, IG, RSS reader and camera (usually without flash). I'm mostly on WiFi using also only 1 SIM at a time (the other switched off).
If using games, this drops to 4-5 hours max. Seems the GPU is burning through battery like butter, the phone is also getting somewhat warmer.
Also been noticing that the mate 10 performs bad in games, could be because the games are not optimized to kirin ?
